It is a well-known fact that the bulk of climbing movies that are flooding the internets these days are bouldering videos. However, once in a while, some good footage of a gear route that I've always wanted to see in more detail comes out.

Post them here! Bonus points for lesser-known footage, or stuff that is not from widely-released climbing movies.

The Shadow, in Squamish (just posted on dpm.com today!):



Maya Smith-Gobat on Salathe headwall (I think I'm in love):



And, great footage of Matt Wilder on Pyromania (warning: I think this requires a subscription to deadpoint's "The Stash," and it also contains footage of belaying while holding a baby, which apparently pisses the internet off)

Holy Shit. That guy climbing Proper Soul deserves mad props.

Thanks for posting that.

I was trying to find the video of Brian Kim on the FA of Monumantle in the Gunks but couldn't track it down, anyone know the one I'm talking about?

Pete Whittaker of Wide Boyz fame, climbing very hard and extremely bold at age 17, the age when I broke into the 5.8 grade on top-rope.

This one is great! EXCLUSIVE: Nick Martino on Utah Sandstone Horror

EDIT: I tried putting the video up from Vimeo, but since it's private you have to view from the link.

One of my favorite forums in a while. Thanks for all of these wonderful distractions! Here are a couple more:

This is one of my favorite clips, from the film "First Ascent" I believe:


I think this was posted in a forum a while ago, and is similar in style to the "Proper Soul" clip above:


And one I am sure a lot of you have seen, the FA of Cobra Crack by Sonnie Trotter:

Great thread! Thanks for starting it. Unfortunately I have no awesome videos to contribute.

Great videos! What is the location and rating of the route that Nicholas posted (the Fear of Climbing)? Do I assume correctly that it's located at the Red River Gorge?


+1. That climb looks great! I looked around a bit on the internet, & could find no info other than a bunch of links to that video. It looks like the RRG, but where & how hard? I would like to maybe give it a go some time when I'm back home. Thanks for any info anyone can provide.

It's still in a secret area. Ask Dario if you're really interested in checking it out.

It's so secret they put out a video about it?

Thanks for the info. I'll do that.
